It’s Thinking – Afterglow [FOM002]

Frame Of Mind is back with another re-issue of a 25 year old record. Gerd’s very first house release called Afterglow, produced under the alias of It’s Thinking together with two of his (highschool) friends Mark and Dirk-Jan, was picked up by John Acquaviva for release on the short lived Plus 8 subsidiary called Malego back in 1992. The EP features five warm and atmospheric house tracks recorded at a dark attic room somewhere in the west of Holland in 1991. These days Afterglow is quite a sought after record that rarely turns up cheap on discogs.

Low Jack – Slow Dance EP [GTCM012]

Get The Curse Music  is back for a very special debut release by Parisian artist Low Jack. At the crossroads between avant-garde techno-funk and a mischievous take on the sound of yesterday, Low Jack’s clockmacker beats are channeled through a radiesthesia pendulum and the effects are akin to vertigo-inducing opiates of the strongest persuasion. In addition to the three outstanding originals, this release contains Gerd’s very first remix as Geeeman.

Alden Tyrell ft Mike Dunn – Touch The Sky [CJFD011]

Alden Tyrell hooked up with Mike Dunn for some new work!. Tyrell always jamming and playing around with his synths had some tracks inspired by early Mike Dunn songs. So the obvious happened… the hooked up for some appropiate vocals and here it is….”Touch The Sky”! A peak time acid monster with Mike’s vocal chant in the style of his classic MD3 projects. Gerd is on remix duty here and delivers a killer remix with a more traditional Chicago groove and build up. Clone head honcho Serge had some studio time with Tyrell for a dub mix. The Serge & Tyrell dub mix turned out a bit wild and became a classic piece of piano and dx bass driven Chicago house music with stuttering vocal samples and a acidic synth line.

NY Stomp aka Gerd – Can You Feel It? EP [ILL003]

Illusion Recordings is bringing an absolute stomper from the appropriately titled NY Stomp with a track called ”the NY House Track”. The track is a massive track inspired by New York, Jersey house music and is designed to get every party rocking! NY Stomp is a special project by Gerd who made this track to add to his live set with no intention to release it. On remix duty its Nicholas and Dj Aakmael both doing an excellent job by smoothening things up and take things a bit deeper.

Arttu – Soul Stream [4LUX1201]

Arttu comes with his first single for 4lux. “Attic House” is a filthy club banger with heavy bassline and cut up vocal bits. Gerd re-arranges the track and adds more drama to the strings coming in halfway throughout the track. “Soul Stream” is a deeper Detroit-ish nugget with nostalgic feel. Yet again Arttu’s trademark of slamming beats & bass combined with cut-up vocals snippets profide for an insane jackin’ track. Last but not least Snuff Crew comes with a heavy re-work on “Attic House”.

Gerd – Palm Leaves Remixes [ROYAL010R]

Two producers on duty for Gerd’s Palm Leaves remixes. Sometimes an amazing track like Palm Leaves just screams for a rework by someone who really could do something nice with it. And this seems to be the perfect remix duo… Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers and Deetron. One for the body and one for the soul!
